Critical Care Nursing Careers at University Hospital

The program hires approximately 12 -15 nurses annually into full-time and part-time positions. 

Critical Care Orientation

New staff are given a thorough orientation to both the Medical-Surgical ICU and the Cardiac Surgery Recovery Unit (CSRU).

The critical care orientation at London Health Sciences Centre's University Hospital is a 10 week course that incorporates various learning methods (self-directed study, online, didactic, case studies, hands-on).  The orientation is longer than most hospital orientations because the nurse must learn about the CSRU as well as the Medical-Surgical ICU.
